I hate eyebrows. There, I said it! I hate how we are not born with perfect eyebrows, therefore, us girls must take time to precisely pluck them, brush them, and then fill them in. Thankfully, Sally Hansen has incredible eyebrow-perfecting tools that makes the job much easier and basically foolproof, even if you aren't an eyebrow expert!
What I do to "fix" my eyebrows is pluck them using two different kinds of tweezers by Sally Hansen—one for stray hairs and one specifically for the arch. The arch tweezer is sharp and pointed, and the stray hair tweezer is slanted. Both products are available at Target.
In this tutorial, I will show you my "lazy girl" eyebrow method - it takes 5 minutes tops!
What you need:
- 1. Sally Hansen Perfect The Arch Dual Slant and Point Tip Tweezer
- 2. Sally Hansen Brow Shaper
- 3. Sally Hansen Raise Some Brows Expert Slant Tip Tweezer
- Your favorite brown eyeshadow that matches your eyebrow color
- A slanted pencil eyeshadow brush
Clip back your bangs if you have them, or any loose hair just to keep it off your face! You don't want anything messing with your brow symmetry.
Comb through your brows with the Sally Hansen Brow Shaper. Use the brush first, then take off the cap and use the comb to make sure they're perfect.
This is going to sound weird, and I definitely look crazy in the picture below, but trust me it makes a huge difference. Take a slanted eyeshadow brush and dip it in some concealer and use it to outline your brows and the brow shape you want. Why concealer? It highlights your brow and also is easy to blend after you're done so there's no need for makeup remover.
Take the Sally Hansen Raise Some Brows tweezer (the pink one) and begin plucking the "runaway" hairs, or the ones that fall outside your concealer outline or fall right on the concealer line. Keep the tweezers as close to the root of the hair as you possibly can to minimize pain.
Note: Do not use ice to numb your eyebrow area! It does not actually lessen the pain, and doing that actually makes your eyebrow hairs harder to pluck, causing more irritation.
Using the Sally Hansen Perfect the Arch tweezer (the silver one), begin literally perfecting your arch. Remove hairs that are outside of your arch, and never pluck hairs from the top of your eyebrows! Always pluck from below. Remember that too much is not always a good thing. (Sorry for cheesing very hard in these photographs. I just love eyebrows!) After that, blend the concealer in because you don't need it anymore!
At this point, your brow area will probably be a little red. That's okay! The pain goes away pretty quickly. Brush through your eyebrows and make sure everything looks good. Then, take your brown, light brown, or dark brown eyeshadow and the same slanted eyeshadow brush (make sure it's free of concealer!) and with small, quick flicking motions, fill in your brows. I fill mine in from back to front so I don't overdo the front of my brow.
Brush through your brows one last time, and voila! You're done. If you see any loose hairs that are outside of your filled-in brow, tweeze them now! After that, your eyebrows should be looking fine!
